Hi all.  I asked a similiar question a few days ago, but either missed it
or got no responses.  The archive also turned up empty...

Anyway, no matter what I've tried, I can't disable visibility of dot files
in my home directory, or elsewhere.

What exactly do I need to do to hide dot files?

I've tried 'hide dot files = true' as well as 'hid files = .*' and various
other incantations in various places in /etc/smb.conf.

Any hints?
